My partner and I realised we had made a mistake as soon as we drove into the car park. The owner is un-friendly, un-helpful and rude. We had no air con unless you pay $10! We paid for wifi and it didn't work! When we told the owner it wasn't working, he made no effort to help us as he... More

Hello Dalekate777, Goodness gracious Dalekate777 you are ticked off aren't you? Sometimes when you feel that everyone you meet is against you it might be time to check your own attitude! After reading your numerous other posts about accommodations you've stayed in the spray I've copped is not out of character for you. I do understand that I'm supposed to... More

The complex is dated and basic. Very noisy due to tram work. Did not feel secure as the locks on the sliding glass doors seemed loose, No air con in my room. ( amazing in 2013 ) A no frills motel. Saying the above, the rate of only $89.00 was a good deal. Close to Southport shops and only a... More

Hello Steve N, Thank you for choosing to stay at my motel in Southport back in July 2013. Your review was helpful and appreciated.
